In comparison to Justice League's $95 million, the opening weekend numbers of the other four DCEU movies went as follows- Wonder Woman ($103 million), Man of Steel ($116 million), Suicide Squad ($133.7 million) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million). The movie, starring Jacob Tremblay as a fifth-grader with a facial deformity, took in $740,000 at more than 2,400 locations on Thursday night.
